On storage requests

I got the following storage request today.

“This host <hostname> is ready.  It will need storage.”

Dontcha love it?  My response was equally brilliant.

“Shall I just make up a number?”

(Somtimes I can be a jerk….)

    I’m lucky, my dba is conservative, gives me specific request details…My other engineers are the same way. We have only one guilty party who indulges in behavior like your example…and I never give him storage. I just wait until he forgets what he was asking for…and he always does.

    Per Dilbert, I’ve submitted a CAPEX to hire some goons to beat the details out of you.

    I like my storage requests written on envelopes that contain valid giftcards for local restaurants please

    1. Hey Jona – it’s been a long time. 🙂

      Money talks, BS walks. Apparently cash on the nightstand speaks for itself. 😉

      I like that, and I will use it. 🙂
